Hi, I don't like traditional Christmas food so I usually have chocolate pudding/bomb for Christmas day dessert. Can anybody recommend the best bought one you've had? Or a good recipe for self melting chocolate pudding?
So far my favourite bought pudding is Tesco finest chocolate bomb; just wish they made it in a bigger size. Marks and spencer used to do an amazing larger sized choc pudding (shelved) but they stopped it afew years back! Any ideas? Thanks...

Gu ganache pots. They are teeny tiny and don't look particularly exciting but very very rich and delicious. Not really a pudding exactly (not cooked) but nicer than any other bought dessert I've had! You could get a couple and top with whipped cream and posh biscuits..?

Thanks minipie sounds yummy but has to be cooked; I have a stubborn DF who won't try new things and likes his choccy pud the old fashioned cooked way! Thanks Summer1986 I'll check the recipe out and may do a trail run if not too complicated hmm

fair enough! I've done these (also Nigella) a few times. Very very easy and you can make the mixture in advance and then just cook at the last minute.

They are delicious but very rich and I find her portions too big (and I'm an enthusiastic eater...) I make them a bit smaller. And yes you need cold double cream with them!

minipie they sound indulgent ans super yummy. I sense I shall have to trial them for Christmas in advance fwink just to quality control my ingredients of course. I have such a sweet tooth and the portion size for me is prob a good thing as I usually manage quite sickly desserts but struggle with too big of a savoury portion; the other and ah around to most I suppose. fsmile
